Fear and Loathing on Tour: Swansea (Woven Man, Urfe and more)

  • The Bunkhouse, Swansea (map)

“We're heading out on tour across the UK this coming April, playing with bands from all over the place, from many different musical worlds!

Our only international (sort of) show of the tour takes us across imaginary lines in the sand to our spiritual home of Wales, Swansea to be exact. Playing at The Bunkhouse alongside doom/stoner bands such as WOVEN MAN and Urfe as well as indie rockers WINDSHAKE and Static Fires. “

Slamming and pounding through anything in there way with monolithic riffs that are reminiscent of a band like Crowbar, with anthemic and harmonious vocals that sound like something taken straight from the Bay Area Thrash scene in the 1980s, Woven Man are anchoring this evening of live music with a set that promises not to be forgotten any time too soon

-- Urfe
"Two de-tuned guitars met with sow, thundering drum beats. Years of bedroom riffs were given life. The influences of Sabbath and their decedents; Kyuss, Electric Wizard, Mastodon, Red Fang, shook around a rehearsal room in a Swansea industrial estate. Acquiring a bellowing set of lungs and a rumbling bass completed the line up. It sounded like a band. The band that those riffs in the back of the vault were waiting for."

-- Sunnylea
Embarking on their first national tour, Sunnylea are gearing up for the release of debut album "The Zoo", set to come out around the middle of 2019. Excited to be playing with some of the best underground bands in the country across this run, the band have prepared a set list with more twists and turns than a cheap garden hose. Imagine Black Sabbath meets Radiohead but not quite as good as either, and featuring the occasional math-rock riff.
FFO: Tool, Smashing Pumpkins, TTNG

The three-piece begin their rise within Swansea’s music scene and were "a crowd-favourite" for many at the Swansea Fringe Festival. The three of them have performed together over a hundred and fifty times across Britain and into Paris whilst also releasing multiple single’s such as “Collector”, “Early Morning Reveller”, “The Awful One”, “A Bag Full of Wonders” and “Get Around (Don’t Get Up). The latter was released alongside their first music video.

-- Static Fires
Static Fires are an ambitious, punchy alt-rock band from Swansea, formed in late 2014. We released our debut self-titled EP on the 11th of March 2016 and have been going from strength to strength ever since.
As individuals we all have varying music tastes, which we blend together to create the Static Fires sound.

NOTE: Set times won't be posted for this show. All bands performing encourage their respective audiences to give their time to the other bands on the bill, if possible.
